The War on Women Hoax II
Women have watched a chilling cascade of efforts in Congress and a succession of states to turn women into chattel, to shame them about sex and curb their reproductive rights. They’ve seen the craven response of G.O.P. candidates after Limbaugh branded a law student wanting insurance coverage for birth control pills, commonplace for almost five decades, as a “prostitute” and “slut.”Oh my. But no mention of Bill Maher, Louis C.K. and other progressive stalwarts who have said much, MUCH worse thing about certain females.
The law student in question is 30 and believes the government owes her free birth control. That doesn't make her a slut or prostitute. It makes her a big-government moocher who believes her fellow citizens should be forced to subsidize 100 percent of her sex life.
Dowd and her fellow progressives think they have cleverly framed this issue to fool female voters into voting for Democrats.
Looking at recent polling data, Micky Kaus thinks they're wrong.
While these nincompoops crow over their own supposed cleverness, the president's poll numbers continue to drop thanks to his "progressive" energy policies and rising gasoline prices.
Most Americans, male and female, would rather have $2.50-a-gallon gas than contraceptives they can buy themselves for $9 a month.
